India is one of the most diverse and colourful countries one can ever come across. Here, one can experience the two extremes of any reality. From high-rise buildings to Asia’s largest slum, educated, English-speaking professionals to poor street kids asking for alms, villages longing for basic amenities to urban cities, women suppressed under veils to women winning Olympic medals and going on the moon, India will surprise and shock you at the same time. Having gained its independence just 65 years back, India is still a young, developing economy. It’s in a period of transition and revolution. So a tourist will encounter a mixture of experiences from the diabolic sting of poverty to the newly acquired wealth and modernity due to globalization.
